READ EVERY LINE CAREFULLY

dont just leech the post, press the thanks button, if this has helped you! )

LAVA IRIS 504Q has only 1 GB for data and mostly this gets filled up when we load several games and applications. The Internal storage has 1.6 GB mostly we dont use and as we have got External SD Card support a few hundred MBs of Internal storage is enough.

I have found this solution and want to share this with you. I did this and have got 2.x GB of data now.

I did all these steps using MIUI V4.7.11 and tested with this ROM only and I trust for any ROM this should work but not tested with other ROMs. Note this.

MERE ROM users may find this as jackpot!!!

I am using MIUI 4.7.11 ROM and I found this app very useful

Download this MIUI V4.7.11 ROM and copy to External SD Card [I used this ROM for flashing and my SD card is set right!!! so recommending this ROM , no further intentions ;o)]

Follow the steps carefully step by step but it is quite easy:

Disclaimer: I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR DEVICE

Step 0: DO NOT PROCEED W/O having this done.
Take CWM backup of your current ROM

Step 1: Install this APP attached

Step 2: Provide SU Permission

Step 3: Open the APP

Step 4: Select 2.0 / 2.5 GB [ONLY - DO NOT SELECT 2.77, your Internal SDCARD will become around 14MB and you may have to restart the process again, I had a hell time having selected this 2.77 option] as DATA Partition [Button - press this button] - You will do this in the APP

Step 5: Reboot to Recovery [Button - press this button] - You will do this in the APP

Step 6: Do Data Wipe [Factory Reset] / Cache

Step 7: Format System Partition

Step 8: Clear Dalvik Cache

Note: the CWM may report an error saying the .android_secure is corrupt, Please ignore this message, All is well

Step 9: Now, Install MIUI V4.7.11 ROM from External SD Card

Step 10: Reboot

PROFIT!!!

See that your Data partition is larger now to hold more and more apps and your Internal SD Card is 300 MB+ for apps like Camera etc..

Notes:
1. When I tried doing this, I just restored the DATA Partition and my device did not even proceeded after the LOGO and hence I have decided to flash the whole rom again
2. I tried restore the entire backup, the ROM booted but the SD card showed corrupt and since I amusing MIUI ROM, the MIUI has asked me whether this SD card should be fixed during the initial boot and I got set this right
3. I TRIED FLASHING THE ROM, THE INTERNAL SD CARD IS AUTOMAGICALLY GOT SET RIGHT AND AFTER THE BOOT I DID NOT SEE ANY SD CARD ERRORS AND ALL IS WELL FOR ME !!!!

No offense to OP
but its already posted .

and it works on any rom- stock rom too.- only if ur rooted.

I personally tested it on our Iris 504q and 6 other mtk phones. (6589, 6589T)

And no need to format internal sd card and u can restore ur cwm backup without any issues.
